Most of sunny Florida experienced its first major spring rain today, which means it’s time for Vautour to start reporting on the season’s hottest fashion trends that go beyond rain boots and floral prints. From chinos to cardigans, and from shorts to dress shirts, our fashion team will analyze trends and help you pick out your perfect spring wardrobe.
GQ’s Jim Moore released his 2011 Spring Trend Report that featured some burgeoning looks along with well-established styles that have been slightly tweaked. Some highlights (pictured above) include dressier sports coats, tennis shorts, colored chinos, cardigans and just about anything red. There are, of course, classics that can never go wrong, like knit ties, short-sleeve oxfords, polos and loafers. And with fresh new styles comes the need to toss out some of the more dated, overdone looks: flip-flops, plaid shorts, pastels. You get the picture.
Each day this week, we’ll discuss some of these looks and fill you in on how you can best achieve them. In the meantime, try some stuff out on your own. Maybe you’ll be the next spring trendsetter.
